Chelsea legend Didier Drogba used to give Arsenal defenders a torrid time whenever the Gunners faced Chelsea.

Drogba was a beast against Arsenal, and scored 11 goals in 13 games across all competitions during his time as a Chelsea player.

And now, William Gallas who both played for Chelsea and Arsenal has revealed that his former Arsenal teammate Philippe Senderos used to panic before games against Chelsea because of Drogba.

“I knew Philippe Senderos, before a match he would need to speak a lot, you could see that he was sweating, that he did not feel good,” Gallas told RMC.

“Especially against certain players. I saw him against Chelsea, against Didier Drogba, where he would genuinely panic, like he was going through his match before playing it.

“And unfortunately, when you saw him on the pitch, he lost his playing abilities, he didn’t play well. But against his own team-mates, he played better.”
